President Biden will own the fall of Kabul — when the real killing begins

“All those lives lost, and we didn’t resolve anything,” said Bill Craun, a former private military contractor in Afghanistan and Iraq who has authored a new book, Working the Kill Zone. “Now the Taliban is going to kill everyone who had anything to do with us.”

For decades, Joe Biden has touted himself as a foreign policy genius. As a United States senator, he never had to make a decision or bear responsibility for running off at the mouth. As vice-president, he was given backwaters such as Ukraine that he reportedly turned into a family piggy bank.

But now he is president. He owns the utter disaster that Afghanistan has become; and the sudden about-face of the Pentagon to send 3,000 fully-armed combat troops back into the fray shows that even the woke military bosses Biden installed can wake up and smell the coffee.

Would Donald Trump have done this differently?

Did America Abandon Vietnam War P.O.W.’s? Part 1 & 2

 Via Mind jog from Reborn

It is not conspiracy theory, not paranoid myth, not Rambo fantasy. It is only hard evidence of a national disgrace: American prisoners were left behind at the end of the Vietnam War. They were abandoned because six presidents and official Washington could not admit their guilty secret.

They were forgotten because the press and most Americans turned away from all things that
reminded them of Vietnam.

Nha Trang, Vietnam Church

Via Huongtam Nguyentran



Nha Trang's Church has many common names such as: Nha Trang Church (because it was formerly Nha Trang's family); Cathedral (because it looks like stone from afar); Cathedral The Six Fall (because it's located near a traffic rotation); but more common than the Mountain Church (because it was built on a small mountain).
The Cathedral on top of Hoang Lan hill, beginning of Nguyen Trai street, assigned to Thai Nguyen street (Junction 6) was built by Louis Vallet porcelain on 3-9-1928 and completed on July 5-1933. to create a face equal to the top of Mount Bong, 12 m high, when building, one must use about 500 mines.
Although over 90 years old, through many rains of sunshine but with unique structure the mountain church has remained architectural values from the past. Currently the church is included in the list of monuments and scenes of Khanh Hoa Province.

Ted Cruz Derails Democrats’ Late-Night Push To Pass Federal Election ‘Takeover

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blocked an attempt by Senate Democrats to push through a federal election overhaul bill early Wednesday morning.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought the For The People Act, a bill critics say amounts to a federal takeover of elections, to the floor around 3:30 a.m. after the Senate had concluded 15 hours of amendment votes on a $3.5 trillion budget resolution. In the dead of night, Schumer sought to pass the federal overhaul of elections by unanimous consent, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I have only committed the mistake of believing in you, the Americans."



The Khmer Rouge communists initiated their dry-season offensive to capture the beleaguered Cambodian capital on 1 January 1975. On 1 April 1975, President Lon Nol resigned and fled the country into exile in Hawaii; the Khmer Rouge had published a 'death list' with his name at the top, and their forces had now surrounded the capital.

On 12 April 1975, United States's Ambassador to Cambodia John Gunther Dean, offered high officials of the Khmer Republic political asylum in the United States, but Sirik Matak, Long Boret and Lon Non, along with other members of Lon Nol's cabinet, declined - despite the names of Boret and Sirik Matak being published by the Khmer Rouge in a list of "Seven Traitors" marked down for execution.[19] Sirik 

Matak's written response to the ambassador stated:

Dear Excellency and friend,

I thank you very sincerely for your letter and for your offer to transport me towards freedom. I cannot, alas, leave in such a cowardly fashion.

As for you and in particular for your great country, I never believed for a moment that you would have this sentiment of abandoning a people which has chosen liberty. You have refused us your protection and we can do nothing about it. You leave us and it is my wish that you and your country will find happiness under the sky.

But mark it well that, if I shall die here on the spot and in my country that I love, it is too bad because we are all born and must die one day. I have only committed the mistake of believing in you, the Americans.

Please accept,


"Man is born to die. I will not move. I shall stay here and face everything that happens. They can arrest me. If they kill me, what of it? I stay for my country."

Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) says Federal Debt is too Much, Should Dump Dept. of Education

 Via Billy

When asked if the $28.4 trillion federal debt was too much, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said, “Yes, it’s way too much.” He added that one way to reduce spending would be to eliminate the Department of Education.

At the U.S. Capitol on Aug. 10, CNS News asked the senator, “The debt of the federal government is now $28.4 trillion. Is that too much?”

Sen. Johnson said, “Yes, it’s way too much. And it’s going to get a lot bigger with what Democrats are going to be doing here and this budget.”

But if you are reading this, you are the threat they are issuing this alert for.

Right after the horrors of 9/11, while the entire country was still in shock and Stupie McFuckwit (G.W.Bush) unveiled this brand spanking new Federal agency he named The Department Of Homeland Security, the VERY FIRST THING that went through my mind was WTF is this and why does this name smack of Fascism and Nazism to me?

I mean really, HOMELAND?
